Patagonian Penguin “Turns Up” For Summer In Brazil

Four years ago, this penguin turned up on a beach soaked in oil. When a local fisherman took him in and fed him, the two became inseparable. Minus a brief stint in the ocean for 4 months at a time, this penguin returns back to his new home and friend for the rest of the year. If that’s not true love, then I honestly don’t know what is.
